Encouraging the Psychic Abilities of Our Children

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” ~ Albert Einstein
This is a fabulous time in history to be a child.
Children in the Western world have the highest literacy and survival rate since the mid-1990s. In 2014, more US citizens enrolled their children in alternative, prestigious, private schools than ever before in the history of US education, and parents use new approaches to disciplining their kids.
Mindfulness and yoga practices appear more and more in both public and private education. In 2014, Brown University broke new ground by offering a major in Contemplative Studies, the first in North America. As of this writing, more than twelve major universities offer a BA, MA, or PhD in Contemplative Studies. Contemplative Studies “looks at how we think about the world and how we think about thinking.” This curriculum spearheads a new approach to education. More schools than ever before now teach children an “I can do it” attitude.
A century ago, people read approximately fifty books during their lifetime. Today, parents invest more in their children’s development and education than at any time during the last one hundred years.
Today, we witness expanding consciousness, as ideas, once considered fantasy and science fiction, become real, radically altering the future for our children. At no other time since the birth of the European Enlightenment do so many children have opportunities to learn how to develop their intuitive and psychic abilities.
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, only three TV shows addressed the topic of psychic or supernatural powers: The Twilight Zone, One Step Beyond, and Alfred Hitchcock. In the last decade, by contrast, hundreds of movies feature psychic powers, and countless TV series feature psychics, mentalists, and extraordinary phenomena.
While intuition and psychic abilities gain widespread popularity in mass entertainment, the surge of interest in intuitive and psychic ability means that fewer people regard these “paranormal” abilities as just the stuff of fiction.
Remember Robert A. Heinlein’s novel, Stranger in a Strange Land? His main character, Valentine Michael Smith, the orphaned son of the first astronauts to explore Mars, learns to have full control over his mind and body. When he finds himself back on Earth, US Government agents attack him and, in self-defense, he sends them into a fourth dimension.
When I read Heinlein’s book, I wondered: What if we could learn to do this and could we teach it to children? The question prompted me to explore my own psychic abilities.
I believe we all once knew how to use telepathic and telekinetic powers (both as young children and historically in the early days of our species), but we lost these abilities during some sort of “dark age.” However, today, as more and more people open up to the possibilities of intuition and paranormal powers, a “new renaissance” of interest in these phenomena spreads in the mainstream. Developing these natural innate abilities signals the emergence of a new consciousness.
